Thanks. If you look at my build early on you'll see my idea changes a bit from how I was mounting them. Thanks

Question about these lights - do the military ones not have backup lights built in? I wonder why they don't offer a version with the backup lights built in.

Military tail lamps do not have standard back up lamps. There is a small blackout light under the small lowest hood on the body. With NVG's it is visible. No MilSpec lamp is made with civilian backup lamps.

Just a updat, www.isee-systems.net is Doug's revised site.

Those rockridge lights you're showing are nice. They serve the purpose. But my only problem is they look like every other LED tail lamp out there and don't add any sort of protection otherwise. Not trying to bust your balls. I'm just saying when I see a "new product" I like to see its new and not just a different shade of black.

My lamps are not a product as much as the Rockridge. What I did would e very expensive but that's why I built them. I wanted something totally functional and different.

Yes sir. These are a simple conversion for the guy that doesn't want to replace his oem stock light after he rips it off on the trail. No balls busted.

Awesome. So is there any extra cutting on the body? I had to make a much larger hole for mine which kinda sucks. I see you have nutcerts but was that all?

Just the raised ears that stick out and then drill 6 holes.

That's a cool conversion. Would sure save my taillights from being ripped off. Not too expensive either.My only concern is how bright are the reverse lights? They look kind of small.

Being that leds are directional...these facing out a few degrees isn't a problem? Nice clean setup for sure.

Don't let the size fool you. These little back up lights back a punch. 200 Lumens a piece. They are brighter then any stock back up light. These lights are also good for rock lights, under the hood lights, tool box light etc.
